This race Mustang, originally built and race prepared for the 2014, all Mustang/Falcon, Goodwood Revival Shelby cup, was immediately on the pace. Despite not having turned a wheel before the race weekend as well as a bent throttle arm limiting the car to 75% throttle, the car finished 5th, amongst the best TC65 cars in Europe.
Since then the car has undergone further development and upgrade, with the intention to build a Notchback Mustang capable of competing for wins in any TC65 grid in Europe.
The car is well set-up and incredibly well-balanced, making it an ideal drive for both historic racing veterans and novices alike. Eligible for International events such as the Masters Pre - 66 Touring car Championship and the Goodwood Revival/Members Meetings, the car would be competitive from the outset having cut it's teeth against regular contenders of the aforementioned races.
